Proposed Admissions Changes – Update

The consultation refers to admissions to primary and secondary schools in September 2016, e.g. those in year 5 now. However before responding to the parent we have been listening to the views already expressed during the consultation, which is due to end tomorrow, and are unlikely to recommend any changes to the current sibling priority.

We would not generally comment on a consultation at this point, but as we are aware that some parents are becoming increasingly concerned we are making it clear at this point that we are unlikely to proceed with the change.
